Who controls your 1 to 1 lessons?

Started by Olaf Elch Dec 30, 2009. 0 Replies

One of the most noticeable things about my 1 to 1's is the differences in style and content. When I do group teaching I use, for want of a better phrase, my "house style". But when it comes to 1 to 1…Continue

I teach a lot of business people, so I often suggest that they read books like, "The Tipping Point" or "Made to Stick." I think biz books are good for all learners because they usually have one or…Continue

Who do you teach? What do you teach? Do you travel to your students, or do they travel to you? Do you work at a school part time?

How long are your 1-on-1 lessons?

Started by Blythe Musteric. Last reply by Chris Cotter Nov 17, 2009. 2 Replies

My sessions are usually 1.5 hours, but sometimes I meet with people two or three times a week for 1 hour. I'll occasionally meet Ss for 2 hours, but that's about my limit.

Hello Blythe and Hi Anne,

Nearly all of my students are one to one students, I think mainly because it works for me at this moment in life. I have a young family (with a three year old son) and this way of self-employed teaching has it's huge benefits time and flexibility-wise. As you know, it does come with it's disadvantages to like the intense preparation for one student and a sort of relentlessness that can set in if you take your eye off the ball. But actually I love it! To focus on one student's needs and development really is a luxury I'm always reminding myself of.

I shall answer the other questions on the comments:) Looking forward to collaborating and sharing with you (and many more I am sure)

Emma
